What if Darth Vader took an active role in raising his son? What if "Luke, I am your father" was just a stern admonishment from an annoyed dad? In this hilarious and sweet comic reimagining, Darth Vader is a dad like any other—except with all the baggage of being the Dark Lord of the Sith. Celebrated artist Jeffrey Brown's delightful illustrations give classic Star Wars® moments a fresh twist, presenting the trials and joys of parenting through the lens of a galaxy far, far away. Life lessons include lightsaber batting practice, using the Force to raid the cookie jar, Take Your Child to Work Day on the Death Star ("Er, he looks just like you, Lord Vader!"), and the special bond shared between any father and son. Plus, this is the fixed-format version, which looks almost identical to the print edition.

SurreyLibraries_Reads below says it all. Actually the first page was the funniest. You have to be fairly into Star Wars and an experienced parent to really GET most of it.

If you are a Star Wars fan and are looking for a good laugh, check out this book by Jeffrey Brown. It’s got short one-page comic book clips showing scenarios of what Darth Vader would be like as a father raising his 4-year-old son, Luke. So funny! I actually laughed out loud – and I am not really a Star Wars fan. I think a fan would appreciate it even more. Enjoyable and a quick read! Sequel alert: Vader’s Little Princess (submitted by DS)

Jeffrey Brown’s - Darth Vader and Son, clearly mislabelled as an Adult – Graphic Novel & Comic. It should have been rated as Juvenile. Hilarious; should be rated for children but teens and adults will find it funny too. Doctor-at-Bass! T. A.

This is so funny. Parenting is the real danger in Vader's life here, and it is fraught with peril.
My only complaint is that this is more for parents than kids.
